She was straight forward, quick and listened even after waiting awhile. Hope we can get to the bottom of the problem - I have a follow up scheduled. What I liked about this office was the use of technology so ifyou did have to wait awhile, they were able to get scripts, scheduling and notes out quickly.

I went to Dr. Chand for a 2nd opinion and was very glad I did. She is well informed and took the time to hear about my full history and current symptoms. She showed empathy and made sure I understood nextsteps as much as possible. The only negatives are that sometimes it is difficult to get in contact with her directly or the front desk does not always follow up in a timely fashion. Dr. Chand was 20-30 minutes late to both my appointments but I understand this happens. Overall Dr. Chand is great and I will continue with her as my new GI.

I'm glad I found Dr. Chand. She seemed genuinely concerned about my health issues and wanted to help me get better. Even though it's a little bit of a drive for me, I'm willing to ditch my current GI doctor andswitch to Dr. Chand's practice. I feel confident she will help me get better and figure out what's my problem.
